Château Vitallis protects the reputation of Pouilly Fuissé wines, especially with its “Vieilles Vignes vintage which symbolizes the success of our production.
The Pouilly Fuissé “Vieilles Vignes” wine comes from 45-to-70 years old vines. In order to make this wine smooth, mellow and fresh at the same time, the alcoholic fermentation and the elevage are done in new oak barrels (for 20%) and the technique of the so-called “batonnage”is used. This technique is a typically Burgundian technique and can be described as a process where the liquid from lower down the vat is pumped over and pushed back down again. Pouilly-Fuisse is the appellation for the finest white wines of southern Burgundy’s Maconnaisdistrict. They are produced exclusively fromChardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintre, Fuisse, Solutre-Pouilly and Vergisson.
